ANGRY BIRD

For as long as I've lived near Falcon, I've never caught any of MD's military birds.  Finally caught one today, albeit in somewhat atrocious light from most angles.  Shot this using spot metering, then used recovery in Lightroom to recover the blown-out background, but that introduced some quirky pinks and purples in the sky, so I killed those as much as I could while bringing out as much blue as I could.  Not a natural-looking shot by any means, but I rather like how it came out.

KING LEAR

To me, bizjets just don't get any sexier than the early Learjets.  My earliest aviation-related memory is that of watching early-model Learjets streak past my bedroom window when I lived just north of Palwaukee Airport (now Chicago Executive) in Wheeling, Illinois.  Seeing these birds takes me back.  Hard to believe the Lear 25 is coming up on fifty years old.

I agree Joe, the Lear 25 is definitely a classic.

POST-GAME KICKOFF

Not very often we get airplanes that sound like real airplanes at Falcon Field.

Joe, both shots from Falcon Field very nice. I really like the wet copter with the Pipers all lined up below. The sight of something wet in the Valley is unique. Nice light on the departing Gulfstream.
